Bradnor Hill is a partially wooded hill above Kington in Herefordshire, reaching 1,283 feet above sea level. It belongs to the National Trust.

The summit of the hill is just a mile from the boundary of Radnorshire, from where flows the Cynon Brook, which runs below the south slope of the hill to join the River Arrow at Kington. A section of Offa's Dyke runs to the north of the hill, and the Offa's Dyke Path winds arounds to the east.

On the slope of the hill is Kington Golf Course, a course which claims to be "the highest in England". (The hill's summit is a rock near the 8th tee.)
